Wow! Last night I was on the Infusionsoft webinar highlighting their Winter Release 2012…some awesome changes are coming! I’ll touch on a few this morning, in case you haven’t heard.
First, they’re updating the ecommerce area, organizing it in a much friendlier, easier to use way. Subscriptions will be considered products and you’ll be able to start charging shipping on subscriptions, as well. Speaking of shipping…all shipping options will be in one central location instead of the one area for order forms and the other area for the shopping cart. Tip: Before they make the change, you may want to go in and update the name of the shipping options you have for your order forms. Just add “Order form” in front of your current shipping so you’ll be able to distinguish which options are which.
You’ll be able to share your emails and webforms through social media. I’ve got one client for which this change will come in handy! Currently whenever she has an email she wants to share through social media, I post it as a blog and share it that way. This will be one step eliminated and we’ll be able to quickly and easily share the email through Twitter and Facebook! LinkedIn currently isn’t an option, but hopefully that will be coming soon. People who receive your email will also be able to share it through social media, and you’ll be able to track shares and views.
Ever wish you could easily have a simple webform which then took the prospect to a more complicated webform seamlessly? You know, your first webform asks for first name and email address, and then it takes them to the next page which asks for shipping information so they can get the free DVD shipped to them. After the update you’ll be able to easily do that! And I say easily because while it was possible before the upgrade, there was some extra coding involved.
That’s it for now! More changes are coming in the spring. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
